One Little Word Blog Hop

It's November 1st. Only a few more months to explore my One Little Word - Ignite.  I have to admit I haven't been looking at my word much the last few months.  I have been scrambling at the last minute to pull together my prompts.  I actually worked on this months prompt on October 30th.  But I realized even thought I haven't been focusing on my word, my word has been in full bloom.

The prompt this month was to re-do the prompt from February which was to explore your word in photos.   Here are the photos that I took eight months ago.

For this months photos I went back and looked at pictures I took over the last eight months that represented my word, using the nine themes I typed on the original photos.

Strength - I'm still working hard at transforming my body.  Getting stronger and faster. It's a part of my life now.

Love - Of my family, of being outside, of being active.

Joy -Enjoying being with friends and celebrating the things in life that make me happy.

Adventure - Seeing new places and things. Going back to school and learning new things. Exploring my life and the world around me.

Creativity - Learning new ways of being creative.

Balance - Making time for my loved ones and myself. Finding balance with the computer and real life.

Health - Eating healthy. Learning to preserve my own food. Taking little steps.

Faith - Having faith in me. Cutting down on the negative talk within my our mind.

Peace - Finding the peace in me time and on the race trail.

All these themes ignite the power within me. I've really come to love my word. It's helped me so much this year and it's not even over.  Who knows what will be ignited in the next two month??  You'll have to come back to find out.

  5. I must admit I also do my assignments at the last minute. Yet at least I am focusing on my word all year long unlike previous years. It does make a difference, as you said it quietly blooms in the background. I am so jealous of the muscles you've developed!!! You go girl. Fabulous round-up of photos for the last 8 months. Looks like ignite was a great word for you! xoxo

  7. I love the differences between your two sets of pictures yet how you've come along on your journey. And I usually do mine the night/day before, too.....I just work better under pressure :)

  8. love your new photos and yes there is such a difference - its amazing how the word grows inside us and become so much more as the year progresses - and yep I am a deadline kinda chick too xx
